A Praying Church by Paul E. Miller
When believers gather and pray together, powerful things happen
Miller admits that not many have the luxury of praying for an hour and a half each morning. He wisely encourages readers to cultivate prayer habits over time. Everything begins with prayer. “I have no interest in doing anything that hasn’t been prayed for and prayed over,” he explains. By example and his testimony, he encourages the reader to pursue prayer.

Paul Miller, Bestselling Author of A Praying Life, on the Transforming Power of Praying Together
In our current culture, the church and prayer are often dismissed as irrelevant. But when believers gather and pray together, powerful things happen: the Spirit equips the saints for ministry, the helpless are met with help, and believers experience the joy of being led by the Spirit of Jesus. In this ebook, Paul E. Miller, bestselling author of A Praying Life, casts a vision for a return to the simple yet life-changing practice of praying together.
Through personal stories and biblical examples, Miller teaches the why, what, and how of praying together. Readers will learn how praying with other Christians can transform their communities into beacons of hope and be given practical strategies—such as finding a prayer partner and prioritizing a structured prayer time—to implement these changes in their own church.
